Windows and Doors for Severe Weather

Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Published on

No matter where you live in the U.S., you undoubtedly experience some sort of severe weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of severe weather. And when it does hit, it’s encouraging to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and doors are shielding your home from the elements.

Be sure your home is ready with great planning and protection, offering special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready for bad weather.

Here are a handful of simple tips:

  • Be sure you have a quality installation – A quality installation provides the intended structural integrity and correct water management during weather events.

  • Consider hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide additional protection to your home from objects that may get tossed about in a storm.

  • Inspect seals – Every window and door has them, but depending on the age and location of your home, it is in your best interest to double check the seals that help direct water away from your home during severe weather.

  • Clear the area around your home One of the best things you can do to guard your home is being sure that the surrounding area has no debris or low hanging branches that could crash into your windows and doors.
